”The Wild Swans” is a deeply touching story of eleven princes turned into swans by witchcraft, and their younger sister Eliza’s devoted affection and warm heart that save them.
The nettles are the plants growing in the woods containing formic acid (antacid) in their thorns. If pricked by it, it becomes very painful, as if being stung by a caterpillar.
Princess Eliza has to knit eleven clothes with the nettles pricking her bare hands, so can you imagine how painful her hands must have been? Not only that, she should not speak even one word while she is knitting, so it is easy to find the indescribable suffocation. And how about the feelings of her brothers who have been turned into swans and were separated from their beloved family?
This is an unendurable suffering for Princess Eliza and her brothers who have lived without any experience of hardship. However, it becomes possible for them to achieve an impossible task because of their love for their family. Finally, they are delivered from all the trials and sufferings and regained their happiness.
